First tablet with glasses-free 3D is the Gadmei T863 from Hong Kong
Hong Kong exporter Brando has started to offer the Gadmei T863 tablet. What sets this tablet apart from others is that the 8 inch screen, with resolution of 1280 x 768, is lenticular which means that it offers users the experience of 3D without having to wear glasses. In the States, we have seen the LG Thrill 4G and the HTC EVO 3D offer glasses-free 3D to smartphone users. The tablet has been set up by Gadmei to play MPO 3D videos as well as H.264 videos encoded with left-right views and a special file name prefix.

Besides offering the glasses-free 3D display, the Gadmei T863 offers a higher level of specs than what you might normally see with tablets in this class. While there is no dual-core processor under the hood, what you will find there is a single-core 1GHz ARM Cortex A9 chip together with 1080p-capable Mali-400 graphics and an HDMI video slot. Corners have been cut to keep the price down, but this price cutting has been limited to 512MB of RAM and one VGA camera in the front. The tablet comes with 8GB of storage and does have a slot for a microSD card. Android 2.3 is installed.

With the cost-cutting, Gadmei has been able to price the tablet at $199, roughly the same as the Amazon Kindle Fire. The Gadmei T863 might not be as fast as the Kindle Fire, but it does have a camera and the 3D display. Speaking of the display, the resolution on the Gadmei T863 is higher than the screen on the Apple iPad.

Brando is taking orders for the tablet starting today. If you are interested in owning the first tablet with a glasses-free 3D display, click on the sourcelink.

3D is so gimmicky. I know the novelty has worn off for A LOT of other people too.

I don't think it's worn off but just to inconvenient and not practical especially when trying to enjoy it with a bunch of people. Glasses free you have to be a certain distant and angle from it and glasses are usually expensive. Well I really can only speak for my self when I say I really have not adopted it yet and still feel it has a lot to offer still if it's donr right.

They should juz build in better specs( at least dualcore) and remove the 3d feature and keep the price at 199... That MIGHT help :D

To put things in comparison for you, LG's glasses-free 3D monitors(Yes, monitors ALONE), costs USD $1, 200 - $1, 500. Know the market price for things before complaining that its specs are too bad for its price.

Now if only Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 2 (or whatever it'll be called) can have this and make it work with better specs [the good thing about these 3D screens these days is that if you don't like it, you can switch back to 2D, so no need to be negative as others might like the technology. What may seem to be gimmicky to you might be useful to someone else]. This is just my opinion, if you don't like it you dont have to read my comment, you can just run along. #iFanWhoDoesntLikeANiPad
